Big John McCarthy: “I would NEVER work for Keith Kizer”

bigjohnLongtime referee Big John McCarthy appeared on The MMA Hour yesterday and had some surprising things to say about NSAC Commissioner Keith Kizer, specifically in relation to the insane judging by C.J. Ross in the Mayweather/Canelo fight.

“The truth is, Kieth Kizer is a person that does not know combative sports. He’s never been part of them. He’s never done them. He puts people [in positions] at times that maybe shouldn’t be put. You tell me why C.J. Ross said the Floyd Mayweather fight was a draw? Did you watch it? My god, I had it 11-1. It wasn’t even close. So if you’re doing that, you keep putting those same people back, you don’t care about the fighters. You don’t care about them as athletes; you don’t care about their livelihood. And you know what? You shouldn’t be in that job. And if someone doesn’t like what I said, too bad.”

McCarthy went on to add that he doesn’t even want to work for Kizer at all.

“I don’t work for Kieth Kizer. I would work for an athletic commission; love to work for them. I would never work for Keith Kizer. Never. If he’s in charge, if he’s the executive director, I want nothing to do with it.”

These are pretty strong statements coming from a guy who’s been around the block a few times. With this kind of public outrage, it won’t be surprising at all to see Kizer’s position start to be scrutinized to an even higher level in the near future.
